Simple circuit fix?(Novice)? Answered
Built this circuit (see attachment) using 2 solar cells putting out about 5.5-6v (got crap meter atm) . 4 xAA 1.2v 2450mAh NiMH Duracell Rechargeable battery's. Found that its drawing charge from my Android phone quite rapidly.
Will another diode before usb fix the problem and block current out of device?
Or a 5v regulator in place?..... Although i read they need at least 7v to work or they will drop overall power?
or am i just talking gibberish here and need a slap?! lol!
some help would be much appreciated!
